USB flash drives have been around for quite some time now. Out of all the drives I’ve ever reviewed my favorite line of drives has to be the Flash Voyager series from Corsair. The main reason is because they are basically indestructible. I take a flash drive with me everywhere and so I need one that is going to take the wear and tear! Corsair first came out with the original Flash Voyager, then the Flash Voyager GT, recently the Flash Padlock 2, and now the Flash Voyager GTR. The GTR is made to be fast boasting speeds of 32MB/s read and 28MB/s write! Corsair was nice enough to send us the 32GB version of the drive so let’s take a look!
– Plug & Play functionality in Windows® Vista, XP, 2000, ME, Linux 2.4 and later, Mac OS 9, X and later
– Limited 10-year warranty
The Voyager GTR comes in Corsair’s typical hard to open clamshell packaging. The front of the package is open so you can take a look at the GTR drive. On the back there is a performance graph and list of everything that is inside the package.
Opening up the package inside we find the Flash Voyager GTR drive, USB extension cable, and lanyard.
